VHF UHF Radio

Professional Mobile Radio

Affini is able to develop bespoke professional mobile radio networks to suit a huge range of settings, indoor and outdoor, with reliability and full engineering support services. Our managed services approach means we can take ownership of any or all of the network design, deployment and ongoing operation.

Ground to Air Radio

Our ground to air solutions ensure absolute efficiency and audibility of communications between operators in different locations. Delivered via a managed services contract, we have a proven track record of installing, commissioning and maintaining ground to air communications compliant with CAA regulations.

Telematics

Telematics

Telematics is the process of sending behavioural information from remote assets to drive business decisions. Examples include the optimisation of fleets based on vehicle data, including emissions that can be monitored to improve the environment, fuel and maintenance savings. Fully customisable reports allow for both historical and real-time operational activities.

Push to talk over cellular

Push to talk over cellular

Push to talk over cellular is a simple function with a big impact. A cloud based, wireless communication technology which maintains a continuous, half-duplex connection within or between user groups, it means that every user can speak to others simply by pressing the push-to-talk (PTT) key on their device, which may be a regular cellular phone. There is no need to dial numbers or actively answer calls.

Dispatch Location Applications

Dispatch Applications

For any organisation operating radios, dispatch and location applications drive visibility and efficiency. Dispatchers are granted real-time visibility into each asset’s location, whilst operators gain the support of active rerouting where necessary. Our managed services approach means we can take care of every aspect of a dispatch and location solution.

Active and Passive DAS

Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS)

In order to ensure coverage and capacity of RF and cellular signals, a mixture of components and distribution techniques are used. Whether passive, active, hybrid or newer intelligent idDAS, Affini can design, install and support tailored to your organisation's requirements.

TETRA

TETRA

Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA) is a European standard for a trunked radio system, a professional mobile radio and two-way transceiver specification. It was originally designed for government agencies, emergency services, the military and transport industries – all sectors for whom reliability, security and clarity of communications are absolutely essential. Affini's expertise covers the design, installation and support of TETRA solutions.

WiFi

WiFi, is the technology that allows a PC, laptop, mobile phone, or tablet device to connect at high speed to the internet without the need for a physical wired connection. We design, install and maintain WiFi solutions drawing on technology from a range of third-party suppliers, including Cisco, Aruba, Avaya and more.

RTUs and IoT Gateways

RTU's Sensors and IoT Gateways

The Internet of Things (IoT) era is enabling organisation to harness more data from across their infrastructures than ever before. Remote Terminal Units (RTUs) and IoT gateways are the technologies your organisation needs to integrate physical devices or sensors throughout your infrastructure with digital analytics or control systems. Affini has the experience of improving business performance through the installation, maintenance and support of this technology.

LTE

Long Term Evolution (LTE) is a next-generation standard for telecommunications and takes users into the 4G era and beyond. It is also a registered trademark owned by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) – a body of which Affini is a proud member. Affini enables organisations to manage the current challenges associated with technology – from coverage, to cost, to supplier restrictions – so that they are ready to face a future in which LTE is the dominant communications standard.
